Video footage of artists to appear or who have appeared at Crawley Blues

Oliver Darling rescheduled 12/2/21

This was intended as a solo set and my old mate and founder member of the club Bill Footman stepped in with his band and we had a blast, relive some of the highlights.

Stormy Monday

The band with Oli fronting them hit their straps with the T-Bone Walker classic.  Tight rhythm section with some stunning keyboard work with Fraser Wigg. 

'That's the glory of love'

Oli is a great fan and interpreter of the music of  Big Bill Broonzy, which was captured at the gig last year, sublime.

'Sugar cane'

Jim Crawford, Crawfie, superb baritone voice with exceptional guitar playing and a wonderful sense of humour. Captured on film by Penny Cahill back in 2012.

'Trouble in mind'

Recording of Jim in 2019 of a particular favourite @Trouble in mind' written by Bertha 'Chippie' Hill. Listen to the guitar coda based on a Ry Cooder lick, does it for me every time.

Mike Dowling: PBS Hour long set from Dubois, Wyoming

Caught up with Mike recently having moved from Wyoming to Mexico. Many people have asked me about Mike and this extended set brings back fond memories.
